Second Grade Update

Dear Second Grade Families,

Thank you again to our chaperones for last week’s field trip to the UC Botanical Gardens! Maribel, Serena, Alex, Patty, and Amy, it was lovely having you with us! The trip was a great success – it was so fun seeing the kids’ enthusiasm and excitement! We enjoyed our knowledgeable docents and traveling through the garden in small groups to  learn about the extreme environments plants have adapted to over time. And of course, the bus trip was a highlight that will be remembered.  🙂

Below is our weekly update. I look forward to a great week of learning with your children!
